History

J.A. BACZEWSKI

 Listen to “COLD BACZEWSKI” song! / Posłuchaj piosenki “ZIMNY BACZEWSKI”!

In 1782 a distillery run by the Baczewski family was founded in Wybranówka, a small suburb of the city of Lwów, capital of Galicia, then part of Austrian Empire, now in Ukraine.  It is recognized as the oldest Polish distillery. In 1810 a small, local spirits factory was inherited by the founder’s son, Leopold Maksymilian Baczewski, who moved the firm to another of Lwów’s suburbs, Zniesienie. The suburb was soon swallowed by the fast-growing metropolis and the factory at Żółkiewska Street started to grow rapidly. The family business was one of four distilleries in Lwów, but it was remarkable for introduction of new technologies.

1782 – the two Geiger in-laws open distilleries in Lwow (Baczewski) and in Zuckmantel, Silesia (Gessler).

1810 – the factory is granted the “K. u. K. Hoflieferant” title

1894 – first bottle shaped pavilion

After the outbreak of the Polish Defensive War of 1939, the factory was bombed by the Luftwaffe during the Battle of Lwów. However, the brand continued to live as a synonym of quality. Its popularity was maintained by many notable writers and poets of the epoch. Last bottles of Baczewski’s spirits were sold for huge prices even 30 years after the war.

1956 – re-establishment of production in the Vienna branch by the Baczewski and Gessler families

1958 – first exposition after the war and export to the USA

2011 – the brand returns to Poland after 72 years on emigration
